  1. ๐Ÿ’ฅI love The Carradine's especially their Father he is awesome such a wonderful actor๐ŸŽฌ๐ŸŽž๐ŸŽฅ๐ŸŽฌ๐ŸŽฅ๐ŸŽฅ๐ŸŽฌ๐ŸŽž๐Ÿ’ฅ

  2. These wartime era movies are so interesting in that they blend entertainment with propaganda and advertising. Manufacturers of featured products (booze, tobacco, and coffee) help finance the movies which are used to encourage people to purchase war bonds to help insure a certain way of life and maintain the customer base for the products placed in the movie. Still common to this day.

  3. Glad I watched in spite of the typically, overly critical 'comments' below;ย  This was an enjoyable film and one of the handful in which the great John Carradine played a leading role.ย  Some of you should move on to the newer Hollywood garbage if these 40's films don't suit you.

  4. This film was made in 1944.ย  It was just about over for Hitler and Goebbels so there was no longer need to be timorous about offending them.ย  It made me know, by inference, that Hollywood must have been REALLY afraid of getting on the wrong side and that PRC Films could do no better than this in presenting such an important, vital subject, in this amateurish, poorly written, directed way.ย  The scriptย defeated even J. Carroll Naish and John Carradine who did better when they were the Hunchback and Dracula in another film.ย  Where were the editors, research people, art directors.ย  Surely, the folks who watched this film who had escaped the Reich must have puked into their pop corn.

  5. Forgettable is right. J. Carrol Naish is not even in this movie. That's a totally different actor playing the optometrist.
